    I have had my male peacock Alvin for about 4 years which have been trouble free until this year !! He had begun to harrass my husband continuously flying at him, following him everywhere as if he wants to attack him,he is fine with the rest of the family. He used to sit and scream happily at my husband while he used the chainsaw, drills, lawnmower anything loud he would love. Today we also saw him attack a friends car in the drive banging and scratching the paintwork maybe at his reflection not sure. He is free roaming around our land and sleeps happily high in the oak tree.Can anyone advise me as to why he might have started this behaviour what we could do?

    I have never had peafowl, but he may need some female companionship.

    Hi we did have a female for the first year but unfortunately we had not realised that she had started nesting on the ground and the fox got her . The pair did seem to wonder far and wide when together so have hesitated on replacing her,he has 20 chickens that he displays for daily although they seem unimpressed at his antics. lol
    Thanks [​IMG]

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. Your peacock needs a mate. He has a lot of pent up energy. [​IMG]
